Luxembourg hosts its first Run In The Dark for the Mark Pollock Trust next week.
The Life Style Sports Run in the Dark plays a vital role in funding the Mark Pollock Trust's mission to find and connect people around the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis.
Mark Pollock from Northern Ireland became the first blind person to reach the South Pole in 2009. But in 2010 he suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury in 2010 that left him paralysed. Undaunted, he has set up a trust to find a cure for spinal cord injuries for the millions of paralysed people around the world.
This year’s Luxembourg Run in the Dark will take place on Wednesday 19 November at 8 p.m. The run starts at the Glacis car park with the 5km route taking in many of the highlights of the city centre and finishing back at Glacis.
Those wishing to complete 10km will loop around once more.
After the race all runners are encouraged to reunite at the Urban Bar for the obligatory Irish night cap and of course to raise a toast to Mark.
Runners should aim to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the start time so that the organisers can ensure everyone will receive a flashing armband and have a group photo taken. Goody bags will be handed out to all participants after the race.
